AHDI-AHIMA Assessing Needs of Transcriptionists

The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and The Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI) have created two surveys to assess the needs of the transcriptionist as well as the needs of the managers and directors who oversee transcription services.  

In today’s rapid and evolving healthcare environment, the timely delivery of documentation is critical to making important clinical decisions.  Speech and natural language processing (NLP) technologies coupled with the electronic health record (EHR) have changed the transcriptionist’s role.  These changes bring a recognized need for transcription professionals to identify a new role or career path; acquiring new skill sets to remain competitive in today’s market. 

Please take a few moments to respond to the survey that best fits your current role:
